I laughed from start to finish. The film is quite old but very watchable. Mr. Benny is best known for his "cheapness" and this aspect of his act is well represented here. I don't think I will ever be able to hear the words "Greek Mythology" again without laughing out loud. I'm laughing now as I write this! From the ladies in the audience (see? I told you it was real") to the closing this episode of the Lucky Strike show had me holding my sides. Watch it!

This episode, as you probably guessed, spoofs those "big money" game shows that later turned out to often be rigged. When this became known later on, the ratings of non-rigged game shows declined as well. As such, I feel the producers of the rigged series ("The $64,000 Question", "Dotto", "Twenty One", and maybe a couple others) should be impaled inside of a giant puppet wielded by a man wearing purple make-up.

But enough of my rant.

This harmless comedy episode contains some memorable moments. My favourites include the bit with the gangsters, and the unique isolation booths. The song-and-dance number isn't too memorable, though.
